Cybersecurity in healthcare is incredibly important. Unlike being able to cancel your credit card when your details are stolen, stolen healthcare information can’t be “cancelled”.
As such, cybersecurity in the healthcare sector is incredibly important and now Trend Micro has joined the fight.
The cybersecurity firm has announced that it has achieved the AWS Healthcare Competency. This is important as it signals to potential customers that Trend Micro is able to meet the security needs of healthcare providers using the AWS platform.
“AWS Healthcare Competency Partners have demonstrated technical expertise and customer success in building healthcare solutions on AWS that securely store, process, transmit, and analyze clinical information,” reads a description of the competency.
As the healthcare sector is unique, providers in this space need to have a deep understanding of a client’s needs. The cybersecurity firm says, citing data from HIPAA Journal, that in 2021, 12 500 attacks against healthcare institutions were reported and over 176 million patient records have been lost since 2009.
These sorts of incidents are only set to become more frequent and widespread as healthcare providers move to digital environments.
“Our flexible solutions are designed to address current and emerging threats and as an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, we are equipped to help healthcare institutions more easily address industry regulations and standards including HIPAA, NIST, PCI-DSS, HITRUST and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR),” explains cloud solutions architect at Trend Micro, Russell Young.
“Trend Micro understands the healthcare industry’s unique security requirements, and we provide layered solutions that fit your existing infrastructure, won’t strain their IT resources, and will grow and change in step with your evolving IT strategy,” adds Young.
With the AWS Healthcare Competency under its belt, Trend Micro now boasts over 15 AWS competencies and designations for its cloud security solutions.
